Excerpt from What We Must Accomplish from Now
Let us look at Abel, what should he accomplish? His responsibility is to unite with Cain in order to subjugate Satan. Then Abel stands in the position to which even Satan has to conform and obey. You should know that this is the responsibility of Abel.
Abel cannot become Abel by himself alone. The name Abel will be given when you restore Cain. In other words, Abel is responsible to look for and restore the positions of the lost three sons. Therefore, in front of Abel, there are always Cain and Satan. Do you follow?
Then, who is the Archangel? The Archangel assisted God when He created the human ancestors — Adam and Eve. By the same token, Abel must assist God in the task of finding parents. In other word, Abel’s position is the same as the Archangel’s position during the creation of Adam. Abel holds this meaningful responsibility.
Therefore, in front of him, there always exists Cain and Satan. Abel must subjugate both of them. Then, Abel must restore the position of parents. He must play the central role of re-creating Adam and Eve before the fall. This is the position of Abel. Moreover, he must close the gap that exists between God and human beings. If he is successful in these tasks, Adam and Eve will be recreated and then God and the human world will be completely one centered on God’s love. Abel must prepare such a road.
Abel must liberate Cain first. Then, Abel prepares all foundations necessary to restore the Parent’s position. This is the mission of Abel. If Abel does not have all necessary foundations, thus allowing Satan to accuse Parents, he has not fully accomplished his mission.
Abel should not have any conditions to be accused by Satan after fulfilling his mission. Abel must take the central role for restoring parents. This is Abel’s position. As you know, Adam and Eve lost the foundation of substance due to the fall. They also lost their heart. Abel must stand in the midway position while taking responsibility for the restoration process, representing them.
In other word, because of the fall, Adam and Eve came to stand in the midway position between God and Satan. So, they vacillated constantly, this way or that. Can they guide and bring Humanity back to God? Adam and Eve cannot do this. But Abel must do this. In order to accomplish this responsibility, Abel must indemnify all remaining conditions through which Satan can accuse human beings – restoring the foundation of substance as parents and finely, the heart of parents.
